Senator HENDRICKSON (VICTORIA) - My question is directed to the Minister representing the Postmaster-General. Has the Minister seen reports in the Press that the Liberal Party has forbidden Senator Wood, who is the leader of the Government's Senate team in Queensland, to appear on a Brisbane television programme in connection with the forthcoming Senate election? Could the Minister tell the Senate whether the ban was imposed by Sir Robert Menzies or Senator Sherrington who, I understand, is President of the Queensland Liberal Party, or was it imposed by one of the hidden persuaders who manipulate the Liberal Party behind the scenes? Has the ban been imposed on Senator Wood because it is feared that he will criticise the incompetence and folly of the present Government as he did once before?
